The first large civil work executed by Techint Engineering & Construction was in 1958, in San Pablo, Brazil, with construction of the Adduction tunnel in Saboó - Santos, for the Santos Department of Works & Sanitation. Techint has since then accumulated a significant experience in water supply systems, leveraging on the leadership position in the pipeline sector and water and seawage treatment plants based on the experience in the downstream sector.

Techint has participated in some of the most challenging infrastructural projects in Argentina, such as the Punta Negra hydroelectric plant -the second largest in the San Juan Province - or the innovative stock-pile assembly construction for Pascua - Lama mining project.

Over the last few years, Techint E&C has completed the extension of the H Subway Line for Subterráneos de Buenos Aires, adding over 4.5 km to the subway network in Argentina's capital city. The works mean that over 300,000 people a day can now travel the new stretch of the line.

In the Telecommunications sector, the company provides engineering, construction and integrated project management solutions to customers from the telecomms, IT and data center segments. The company develops Integrated Telecommunications Systems, specializing in laying fiber optics and developing cellular telephony infrastructure sites, as well as repeaters, radiobases, radiolinks, Digital TV, LAN, ADSL and WI MAX networks.
